- The served VR awakening the giant owner of Vapor, technology in some aspects still immature but that, with this game, takes a clear and decisive step forward.
- Also, perhaps this was precisely Valve’s goal, a bit like what happened in the previous chapters.
- For the love of God, Half-Life: Alyx does not present anything new or never seen before.
- But it is the wise union of several elements that bring to life an actual triple-A game in virtual reality, the first of its kind: a decided formula winner.

Half-Life Alyx Review
- The gloves supplied to the protagonist are highly functional for the game since they allow you to move as little as possible when you have to collect some objects, ammunition, treatments, or others.
- Just point your open hand at something, close it, and flick your wrist to draw what you need toward us – a great power saver.
- Along with the gloves created by the weird Russell, our Alyx also enjoys good firepower, even if it’s not great.
- During the game, only three weapons propose, joined by Garnet, each of which has different loading systems and upgrades.
- I must say that the firing system is well, and we can hear the shots.
- But it is still several options reduces to the bone and skinny, and from this point of view.
- I would have expected a little more.
- Even the general AI of the enemies certainly doesn’t shine for inventiveness.
- Excluding monsters like Head crab and the like, whose movements.
- And actions are still consistent with their nature, the same cannot be said for Combinations.
